Mumbai, Sep 4 (PTI) A new revenue structure will be implemented in Maharashtra after nearly eight decades which will include 12 types of changes to '7/12' land records, said state revenue minister Balasaheb Thorat on Friday.
A unique code for each village, a government logo with a watermark on every 7/12 and a QR code would be some of the main features of this new 7/12 structure, Thorat said in a statement.
'The revenue accounting system at the village level in Maharashtra has been changed through the Revenue Department of the state government. During the British period, MG Hartnell Anderson prepared a manual in this regard, which was later revised in 1941 by MJ Desai,' he said.
'After nearly 8 decades, the new revenue structure is being implemented in the state and about 12 types of changes have been made in 7/12 record method,' Thorat added.
He said the changes in the 7/12 record method will bring about transparency and reduce land revenue disputes. PTI MR BNM BNM
